Drake knows how to make a hit record - his three studio albums all debuted at No. 1 on Billboard - but who knew he was also an incredible host? The 0 to 100 rapper hosted this year's ESPYS and delivered a hilarious and confident performance. Below are five of his best moments from Wednesday night.

Drake's opening monologue:

Drake opened the show and kept the crowd laughing with his references. He spent time discussing Lebron James' move from the Miami Heat back to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Seattle Seahawks player Richard Sherman.

"You know, tonight a man told me that Richard Sherman is the best defensive player that he has ever seen. And that man's name was Richard Sherman," Drake said about Sherman who was caught on camera postgame in January yelling about Michael Crabtree and calling himself "the best."

The 27-year-old also spoke about Mr. Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers who was banned for life from the NBA after he was recorded saying racial remarks. "In fact, we are just a couple of hundred yards from Staples Center, which also happens to be as close as Donald Sterling is allowed to get," Drake said.

Drake's Lance Cam:

One of the most comical moments of the night came when Drake blew in the ear of Lance Stephenson to reenact an actual interaction between the Hornets' star and Lebron James in May.

Drake and Chris Brown make up:

Drake and Chris Brown have been feuding since their 2012 club brawl. Last night, however, the two put their aggression to rest. In a pre-recorded skit, Drake is shown at a dentist's office while ball player Blake Griffin and Brown are about to operate on him. Griffin and Brown both appeared on stage after the clip aired and joked that they replaced Drake as the new hosts. Brown also introduced himself as "America's sweetheart," which defines his reputation quite inaccurately.

Drake's two new songs:

Drake serenaded the crowd with two new tracks - Honorable Mention and Side Pieces - and although he appeared to be serious, the lyrics were not.

On Side Pieces, Drake referenced the indiscretions of many basketball players that often make the news. "Side pieces, I know that you're watching this from home. I can't wait to see you on the road. Cheering from the shadows, I hear you calling out," he sings.

And on Honorable Mention, Drake bashed Macklemore's Grammy win for best album in January by showing a picture of him when he sang, "I know you understand, real talent doesn't always win championships, like real music doesn't win Grammys."

Drake dresses like Russell Westbrook:

At one point during the show, Drake came out on stage dressed as Russell Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard who is known for his eccentric fashion choices like big glasses and bold patterns. In turn, Drake sported green capri pants, a yellow vest and glasses with a red frame.
